    well, its apparent everyone here likes to look at pics! and i like to take them.

    there will be heavy buell content! pics from a few of my rides, and pics of some of the stuff my friends and i have built over the years...

    we will start with the fleet. its somewhat always rotating, but a fair amount of them have taken up permanent residence.

    last day of the buell factory... some of us had a get together there. Erik had already caught wind of the fact i was planning on sacrificing a tire. almost had him talked into doing it himself, but he said he didnt want to owe me a belt(ive gone through seven) i said i had a spare along... he said something about being the only one that trusts me because he stood right infront lol

    No Rice,

    I recognized the Orange Crush and OD XB the moment the page loaded. I think I am finally going to pick up my first Buell. I have been comparing several Ulysses' over the last few weeks and should be pulling the trigger on one soon.
